1/2 c. starch
1 pt. boiling water
1/2 c. mild soap flakes
1/4 c. talcum powder
Food coloring or poster paint


Dissolve starch in cold water (just enough to cover). Add starch to 1 pint boiling water, stirring until it bubbles. Allow mixture to cool, then add 1/2 cup mild soap flakes and 1/4 cup talcum powder. Stir until well mixed. When cool put in tight screw top jars. Add food color or poster paint to each jar, making different colors. To use paints, moisten glazed paper or heavy wrapping paper with water. Then "paint" with fingers. Experiment by smearing with palm and edge of hand as well. Plenty of old newspapers and protective aprons for the painters will make cleaning up afterwards easier.
